If you were following my instagram or twitter or facebook you would have known that I was in Singapore last weekend to attend the Tokyo Auto Salon Singapore. Prior to going over my friend was telling the to check out handy.
handy is a is basically mobile phone rental for SGD$15.00 per day. Obviously we don't really want the phone, we want the access to the unlimited 3G data and free local / international calls (5 mins) facility. The service is also available in Hong Kong.
What a week, I attended one wedding and covered two weddings (Penang). The first one was because I had nothing to do therefore I joined Ken Yeoh for the shooting. Have to follow the professional and see how its done! It was a very long and tiring Sunday. The first couple was Choon Siang & Yoke Ling. I will only be posting maybe a handful of pictures as this was a paid job for Ken, wont want to upset the clients now ya?

The third couple was Aaron & Annie. Annie is my friend from college. Wow its been quite a number of years!
2010.09.16 - Aaron & Annie
I am not sure if I will be posting all photos. I just took random pictures at Aaron & Annie's wedding dinner reception. There were too many photographers ! hehe! Also the main reason was I was not feeling well that evening.
Time to rest, more to shoot later. Beyond's press conference & meet the fans session.
Landed last night from Penang at around 8pm. What a tiring trip. Had heaps of nice food. Met up with my buddy Ken Yeoh. Got to play StarCraft2. Sat on the Sachs Maddass 125. Shot two weddings in two days back to back. Learned many things, especially realizing that I'm off my game. Missed many nice moments, and kept on looking for the right setting. Practice makes perfect. I need to practice more, tomorrow there I'm attending another wedding. I will bring my camera and try to capture some nice moments.
Three weddings in four days. Its very exhaustive. Ugh, not feeling too good. I need to sleep now.
Adjusted the color slightly. Love her expressionOff shoe flash~ guess how manyThis was such an impromptu shot. She was checking out the skies and I took the shot. Lovely.The rest of the pics can be found in the gallery.
Stephen and Agnes held their wedding ceremony on 20th March 2010. I was busy being the “Heng tai / driver” therefore didn’t take much photos.
Image capture by FoosiGroup photo xD Image from FoosiAlex was so busy going around to take the rose petals. But at the end the guy who took the photo using Foosi’s camera did not burst the shutter, so he only got 1 shot. Many of us still had the petals in our hands!
xD xD XD xD xD
What I did was compile pictures from Foosi and added some video clips which I took with my Sony Cybershot DSC-T90
FUN! Must watch till end, may take a while to download/stream!
Still trying with the rose petals xD

The next day 21st March I went to watch the go-karts demonstration at hills. I got passes from Mr Jong for both myself and my penang friend, Ken Yeoh.

I have known ming (driftbaby) since 2004 or so via one of my website / forums. He has always been the creative and a very giving person. Good sense of humor and personality. He has been trying to pass me the invitation card for his wedding for a month. As I was travelling all about in Nov, everytime he text me I was out of town. Finally caught me a week ago.
So the wedding dinner was on 3rd Dec 2009. Held at the Association of Churches in Sarawak. The other time I was there was for the Sin Chew carnival. It was a large venue, even then the parking was just ample. I had to park all the way at the back. Anyways this round I didn’t bring my heavy gear, only my Sony Cybershot DSC-T90.
It was a huge 8 course meal… and at my table 2 were vegetarian, 1 empty seat and a girl (so eat less la!). Its been a while since I have attended a wedding dinner where I left with a full tummy.
I purposely chose to bring only the compact camera cos I wanted to shoot some videos. So here is the result of the night. All the clips combined it comes out to be just under 8mins. Enjoy
It was very interesting with all the dancers and stuff. Its probably a trend now, as everyone wants to make a more memorable wedding dinner xD I must say this is quite memorable.
This is us… the 4 guys left… Melvin had to run so the rest of us had to eat his share as well. Matthew, Allan, Jordan, Driftbaby, Wui, and ME.
And have you ever seen such a cute and adorable wedding car?
This car is his pride and joy. He has been working on it for a good 4 years. And it is still not complete. Restoring it slowly but surely.
Well it has been a blast knowing ya.. congrats driftbaby! So when is driftbaby jr coming along ?
